Another Round of Proof Sheets Down as Everywhere Stories Nears Fall Publication

Another week, another weekend, the writing life goes on.  This weekend brought my writing group’s monthly meeting (my story critiqued, a short-short “steampunk romance” that got a better reception there than from editors so far) and, actually received Friday, a full galley proof of EVERYWHERE STORIES, VOLUME 2 (cf. May 10, et al.), with my one-time ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S MYSTERY MAGAZINE story everywhere1“The Wellmaster’s Daughter” number three in the contents lineup.

Her tale originally published in November 1991, and also reprinted in STRANGE MISTRESSES:  TALES OF WONDER AND ROMANCE (for details on which, one can press its picture in the center column) and Smart Rhino Publications’s 2012 UNCOMMON ASSASSINS, etc., the daughter in question displays poor judgment in making friends, something that can have dangerous overtones if one’s home is in the Sahara Desert.  But part of the subtext of EVERYWHERE STORIES is itself danger, according to Editor Clifford Garstang, along with more than just a touch of the mysterious, with story locations spread over twenty different nations, covering at least five continents.

And so, Sunday night, in the wee, wee late hours, my “okay” of my parts of the text went back, well ahead of a July 10 deadline.  The book is still on schedule for an October or possibly earlier release, and therefore should be out from Press 53, LLC, well in time (for those who might, *ahem*, contemplate giving gifts) for a worldwide Halloween celebration.

    Portends to be fascinating reading, Jim!

  2. Hi Marge, thanks, it’s mainstream more than genre, I think, but I’ve seen the contents list and it seems fascinating! (Incidentally, are you clicking on the illustration rather than “leave a comment” or the blog title to make a comment? It records it on the illustration page, but not on the blog page proper, and doesn’t even tell people there is a comment unless they happen to click on the picture too — so what I’ve done on this, and I think the last one too, is copy and paste it into the blog as if it were my comment, then edit to change my name to yours. Strange the ways of WordPress! 🙂 )
